Dex Flix's Film Review "SORRY TO BOTHER YOU" 2018 

Most of us can say we've been in good and bad jobs with its perks. Lakeith Stanfield plays "Cassius Green" trying to get a breakthrough in life as he tries to make to the top as a Power Caller.

While his success booms his best friend "Salvador" Jermaine Fowler feels his selling out to the Company as the employees feel their getting under paid and opt out for a strike. Little did  "Cassius Green" know that he is in a conspiracy battle where his life is on the line, literally.

Dex Flix's Film Review "READY PLAYER ONE" 2018 

Steven Spielberg, Sci-Fi and retro computer games, well you know this is a recipe for exciting times. Based on the novel by Ernest Cline, this story brings to life the wonderful ways in which you can cross platform in-between different types of games and possibly lose your life in the mist of it all.

Great cast of characters and loved the examples of retro cars and characters along the way. Definite worth a watch if you love fantasy.

Dex Flix's Film Review "WRINKLE IN TIME" 2018 

We are all special in one way or another and sometimes to show your true worth, you have to lead by example. This film was typical Disney with its magic and sparkle but also had a good cast with the likes of Oprah Winfrey as "Mrs Which" and Reese Witherspoon as Mrs Whatsit to name a few.

This could be a hit or miss with some families a a film to watch so bare that in mind.

Personal Rating 6.5/10 | Critics Rating (IMDd) 4.2/10

 

Dex Flix's Film Review "UNSANE" 2018 

What can i say about this film here, well imagine you go to your daily work and notice a man staring at you and notice it becomes creepy. You file a restraining order on that person.

You go for health check up and sign your life away to only notice that you haven't checked the small print and end up in a mental institute where no one believes you. Ask youself this, how are you going to going to escape back to the life you once had?

Dex Flix's Film Review "I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO" 2018 

From his unfinished novel, Richard Baldwin tells us the modern story of America and what it was like  growing up with iconic leaders such as Malcolm X or Martin Luther King. The director Raoul Peck makes this documentary a powerful viewing of James's life and beliefs on equality. I would recommend this to anyone who want's an insight to the reality of America and its haunting past.

Personal Rating 7.9/10 | Critics Rating (IMDd) 7.8/10

Dex Flix's Film Review "TOMB RAIDER" 2018 

First thing's first this is not Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft of 2003, this is the modern version of the game's 2013 Tomb Raider.  Alicia Vikander who plays "Lara Croft" gives us the early years of how she became the fierce-some warrior we all love in the game franchise.

There are parts of the film i felt were over done with the use of CGI like most action films of the modern era. Overall the film was just above average and i wouldn't say it was Alicia's best roles to date and that might be due to lack of direction from Roar Uthaug.

Dex Flix's Film Review "RED SPARROW" 2018 

An American Spy Thriller that features Jennifer Lawrence as a Prima Ballerina called "Dominika Egorova" suffers from a major accident which brings uncertainty to the progression of her career. She soon turns to secret intelligence agency called Sparrow School where they train the young gifted minds and body as weapons of destruction.

Dominika rises as the most potent Sparrow ever created from the school and discovers she needs someone to have her back after meeting the CIA agent "Nathaniel Nash" played by Joel Edgerton. This film for me was rather drawn out and could have been shorter for what it covered. Personally its not one to remember after the intro of the film.

Personal Rating 6.2/10 | Critics Rating (IMDd) 6.7/10
